|Calculated MW||57359 Da|
|Application Notes||ZGPAT antibody can be used for detection of ZGPAT by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunofluorescence starting at 20 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||ZGPAT; Multiple isoforms of ZGPAT are known to exist.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ZGPAT antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||ZGPAT Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GPATC6, GPATCH6, KIAA1847, ZC3H9, ZC3HDC|
|Function||Transcription repressor that specifically binds the 5'- GGAG[GA]A[GA]A-3' consensus sequence. Represses transcription by recruiting the chromatin multiprotein complex NuRD to target promoters. Negatively regulates expression of EGFR, a gene involved in cell proliferation, survival and migration. Its ability to repress genes of the EGFR pathway suggest it may act as a tumor suppressor. Able to suppress breast carcinogenesis.|

ZGPAT Antibody: The Zinc finger CCCH-type with G patch domain-containing protein (ZGPAT), is a transcriptional repressor that regulates several cellular pathways including EGFR pathways that are involved in cell proliferation, migration and survival. ZGPAT recruits the Mi-2/NuRD complex and represses the expression of EGFR. ZGPAT is down-regulated in breast carcinomas and its expression is negatively correlated with that of EGFR, suggesting that it may be a potential target for breast cancer therapy. Multiple isoforms of ZGPAT are known to exist, including sZIP, which binds to the Mi-2/NuRD complex but lacks the DNA binding component of full-length ZGPAT, thereby antagonizing transcription repression and growth inhibition by ZGPAT.
